Pop songs, but not pop songs. Cloud Control seem to exhale melody at will, with the gilded psych-pop meditations which made up their debut album introducing a potent talent.
For the follow up, though, the band decided to shake things up. Sure, 'Dream Cave' contains more than its fair share of harmonic addiction but there are also nods towards Beastie Boys, Fleetwood Mac and - erm - rave.
It's a curious beast. Out now, Cloud Control have decided to strip album cut 'Moon Rabbit' and proper it towards the waiting world as a single.
Three and a half minutes of other-worldly pop, the layered vocals seem to come in and out of focus like a kaleidoscope swirling in the morning sun.
Out on February 17th, the Australian-born group are set to toast the release of 'Moon Rabbit' with a full tour of their adopted British home.
Check out the dates below, but not before perusing the trippy, hypnotic 'Moon Rabbit' video - making its debut on Clash.

12 Manchester Gorilla w/ Younghusband & Babypink
13 London Heaven w/ Teleman & Younghusband
